HELLO ALL MY DANCERS AND FAMILIES!!!
I miss you all soooooo very much and can't wait for us to be together and we can get back to the studio.
Unfortunately I thought we could announce today that we could go back on the 19th....BUT at today's press briefing with Governor Baker he stressed that the Department of Public Health's stay at home advisory remains in effect and gatherings of 10 or more people remain prohibited until May 18th. Non essential services, (which I take issue with...lol) requires that the public not enter brick and mortar existing bans or gatherings of more than 10 people until this May 18th deadline.
So as this deadline approaches Governor Baker has stated that a report is coming out next Monday, May 18th that will include DPH approved workplace safety standards, industry frameworks and customer protocols and guidelines including enforcement mechanisms....BUT even all of this is dictated with the public health data and guidance from heath care experts.....so BASICALLY I DON'T KNOW WHEN WE CAN RE OPEN...
BUT HERE IS WHAT I DO KNOW.....I really would like to get back to the studio and finish this season...the girls worked 6 1/2 months on a routine and we are so close ....so right now I would like to have the goal of going back in June sometime, based on the guidelines that I mentioned above and sometime this summer have a Recital. The girls were about half way finished with their Recital routines so I do believe that we can finish these routines....
I know the KP High School graduation has been moved to August first..so there is hope....
For now, lets hold tight till May 18th, next week, to see what guidelines are put into effect then we can put perhaps a schedule together.
My attitude is that every child needs dance in their life, and that together we can make a difference by bringing a sense of normalcy to all my students.... stay safe and keep on dancing!!!
